This is a such a lovely house with a beautiful interior. We really felt at home in Maria’s house and it is fully equipped for all necessities. We were very sad to leave and would recommend this house to any friends, couples or families travelling through Tuscany. Pros: The upstairs bedroom was very comfortable and had a great bed (we were one couple) The layout of the house was great with a very nice living room/ dining area upstairs with lovely views for relaxing, working or eating. All rooms have mosquito nets on the windows. Beautiful walks directly from the house. A lovely outside area (but with quite a few mosquitos) Great restaurants nearby. Extremely quiet so great for relaxing or working. There is no wifi, but great phone coverage for working/calls. Cons: In the summer there can be a shortage of water, so the water can sometimes be turned off for a few hours a day (for us it was at night). Was not a huge problem but just to be warned for no nasty surprises. Unfortunately you can’t really drink the water from the tap as water contains a lot of limescale. So we had to buy bottled water.

Maria's place is ideal for anybody who wants to discover Tuscany for an extended period. Don't miss walks in the countryside, visit to San Gemignano, and of course Firenze and Sienna ! We felt so welcome ! And the place is so very quiet. Pure bliss !

Maria's house is lovely, we had a great time. We did get a bit lost getting there but once we found it we were fine. A car is a must have due to the houses location.

Best choice for holidays in Toscana for those, who wants to spend time away from people. It's a country side with vineyards and the only sound you can hear is a church bell :) House is very cozy, has enough place for many people, lines, towels and kitchen accessories were provided. Good restaurants are not far away. We liked the cottage and surroundings a lot.

The most charming location I have ever stayed by Airbnb. If you love Tuscany it is a place for a real countryside Tuscan experience. :) Beautiful, spacious house with two bathrooms and lovely surroundings (place for grill and chill during the hot evenings). Everything was as described and we didn`t experience any difficulties in finding the place with GPS. We didn`t meet Maria in person, but was welcomed by her family. They were most helpful and lovely, especially her brother. We were able to practise our Italian as well, because of the amicable neighbors. It is a great location to visit Florence, Siena or San Gimignano, which we did. A car is a must in this location. The nearest supermarket is about 15 minutes by car. We made use of the kitchen and cooked for ourselves, which was super easy, taking under consideration fully equipped kitchen. You can get vine and olive oil from a local manufacturer situated just 100 meters from the house (for a very good price). It was a shame to leave Certaldo as we felt like home in it. Thank you Maria for this great experience. :)

What a great airbnb for visiting the region of Tuscany! The location is perfect between Florence and Siena, which we visited. The house is difficult to find with the GPS, but the instructions are well written out in the description. The house is about 20 minutes in the hills away from big roads, so you really get to experience the Tuscan countryside, which we loved. We felt safe in the neighbourhood and in the house the moment we arrived. A car was a necessity in the area. Perfect location for going wine tasting in nearby vineyards. Not many restaurants are open every day and late so it is a must to plan ahead, by either stopping by the supermarket in the city (before 8:30pm) or getting information about the restaurant locations & their schedules. The house was very spacious and comfortable, especially for only 3 people (could easily fit 6 people). The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook and there are more than enough towels and blankets for the beds! The lowest floor of the house is quite humid and cold, even for the end of May/ beginning of June - we did however get a rainy week there, but plan on bringing a sweater just in case. Maria was the most welcoming and kind host ever! She made our stay a memorable one. We hope to be back very soon to visit you again, thank you Maria! Karine, Anastasia & Sylvie

Maria is a great host. She came to the nearby village to show us a way to her house, since we couldn't find it and we were lost for about 1 hour. She is very worm and welcoming person and I wish she could speak English, I'm sure she would recommended us the great sites to visit. The house is lovely. It's perfect for 2 couples. We found there everything we needed. It's clean and cozy, the towels and linen smells great. Kitchen is fully equipped. It really feels like home. We were there on 1st of May and it was a bit cold in the house, but with 2 blankets there was no need to turn on the heating. I would recommend staying in Maria's house. The location is great to explore Tuscany by car. Maria thank you very much for everything!
